Getting Rid Of Stubborn Calluses

Heeeellllllooo there, From The Top Family! It’s the end of another week which means it’s time for another blog post and today, we’re talking about feet …AGAIN! In today’s post we’re sharing with you all a step-by-step instructional on how to get rid of stubborn calluses. Being a dancer means that you sign yourself up for quite a bit and calluses are definitely comes along with the territory. And on top of them being inevitable, calluses uncomfortable and um…what’s that word we used earlier? Oh yes, STUBBORN! However, per usual, I’ve learned a few hacks along the way and discovered a few ways to get rid of them a little faster. Let’s jump right into it!

Step #1
Soak Your Feet In Warm Water w/ Epsom Salt
Okay this first tip is very important as it is a great way to begin the callus elimination process. Using a foot tub, fill the tub up with warm water and one of cup of Epsom salt. Immediately after doing so, soak both of your feet in the tub for about 15-20 minutes. After you’re done, dry your feet off with a towel and lets move on to step number two!

Step #2
Use A Foot Scraper
Once you’ve soaked your feet and have dried them off, immediately take a foot scraper and begin to shave down the callus. Make sure the skin on your feet still have a small amount of moisture from your epsom salt foot bath, as it will make scraping the callus much easier.

Step #3
Moisturize The Callus w/ Neosporin

Next, after you have shaved the callus down, moisturize it with Neosporin. You can moisturize with many different products but Neosporin does WONDERS, as it aids in healing and quick restoration.

Step #4

Protect The Callus With A Band Aid

Now that you have moisturized the callus, cover it by using a band aid. Walking and dancing can cause the callus to open and come back twice as bad as it was originally (yikes!). By covering it, you will be able to add a little extra protection to the affected area and minimize your chances of a callus comeback!

Step #5
Re-apply Neosporin Every Night, Especially After Long Dance Days
Every night for about a week, I highly recommend reapplying neosporin and changing out the band aid. The more you moisturize the callus, the faster it will heal. So, be sure to keep it healthy and protected and before you know it, that stubborn callus will be well on it’s way out of your life…and foot!

I hope these tips were able to help you today! Feel free to give these tips a try and kiss those stubborn calluses bye bye! (I’m on a role today, aren’t I?) Thanks so much for hanging out with us! It’s always a pleasure to have you here in our community.

Keep Dancing!
